The 11th annual Harbor and Seafood Festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. Admission is free.

This signature waterfront event coincides with lobster season and features local commercial fishermen offering the Santa Barbara Channel’s freshest seafood.

Fishermen and seafood vendors will provide a bounty of lobster, crab, barbecued albacore, clam chowder, fish tacos, seafood gumbo and more.

Arts and crafts vendors will offer jewelry, clothing, art, photography and other handcrafted items. Ocean-related agencies will provide information and history about local ocean resources.

And don’t miss the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s films and exhibits, plus touch tanks, tall-ship tours and free boat rides and dockside tours. The Santa Barbara Harbor Merchants Association will sponsor local live entertainment on the main stage.
